Microsoft Azure Pricing Reviews

Pros
  • Interested in many of the other Microsoft programs. Comes with some free credit. Very fast performance.
  • a really good integration with microsoft and way above average performance. Great interface and easy to learn with.
  • Good frontend management interface, it's windows compatibility is great. Also has Linux and container compatibility
  • I love the blue/green feature of doing a release of our website. Having staging built into the product is a great feature.
Cons
  • I really do not have negative experiences with this software. I can not say something bad about Azure
  • - It lacks options for lifecycle management. - Some of the features only work in the classic portal.
  • The pricing is on the high end for what this is. It becomes very cost prohibitive for smaller organizations.
  • Very expensive, the cheaper plans do not have many functions, tech support costs extra and complicated setup.

cheap cheap licensing and bandwidth.Obviously, Microsoft can go right after google and AWS and undercut the Microsoft server licensing model since they can give them away. That has ensured a very low cost point. That said, that is really the only draw. If you are on a linux platform, I'd probably take AWS or google. Spinning up a VM (even pre-configured for you) was as simple as a couple clicks. Performance was as expected. The only issue I had was support.

1. The pay to go helps to pay only for the usage. It helps in reducing the backup cost a lot. 2. The backups are compressed, so it helps in making the backups faster and affordable because of small size.

The price is pretty competitive. Visual Studio tools are built for it. There are tons of storage options, and if you're building an app from the ground up you can take advantage of cheap storage like Table Storage where possible, and SQL (or other DB) for the rest. There's a video transcoding service. I never thought we'd need it, but we do now and it's really reasonably priced. Lots of little features like this are really convenient.

Azure allows us to provide a complete customer solution in the cloud, providing servers, databases, authentication and web services/sites. The newer administration user interface is simple to use, yet allows control over most of your services, and powershell can be used to control them completely. We host several customer environments in the Azure cloud, along with our own SaaS product, and we have never had a problem with it. Monitoring is also comprehensive, allowing manual or automatic availability provisioning to be easy.

Among the benefits offered by Microsoft Azure is that of cost reduction: Unlike investing in acquiring and maintaining the hardware in your company, the cloud option offers you to avoid the purchase and significant savings in energy consumption, support and maintenance. Flexibility: The cloud allows you to quickly obtain more or less resources / server power according to the need at each moment, without investments in assets. Targeting: Infrastructure as a service allows you to free up time and resources up to that point destined to maintain your own infrastructure, to direct them to tasks of greater value for your business among others.it helps us to respond quickly to changes in the needs of the company, by allowing us to expand or reduce IT resources based on their use, since Azure
